Chicken Tikka Masala
Good, but I'll keep salt on the low side, just adding 1/2 teaspoon for the marinade, and adding some to taste when making the sauce - if needed. Couldn't get garam masala, but I'd recommend throwing a couple of cardamom seeds when frying the garlic cloves and taking them away after 5 - 7 secs. It would perfume the sauce and give it a special taste. I also didn't include the jalapeƱo pepper since that would give more of a mexican touch to the recipe, which is really far away from what you want it to be. Definitely add 1/2 chopped onion to the sauce. Thanks for posting!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake
Amazing carrot cake! I made this cake yesterday, followed the recipe as it is, except that I added one more teaspoon of vanilla extract and did the milk+lime trick instead of buttermilk, all keeping the measures. To be honest, the cake is AWESOME! The only thing I noticed is that it might be a little too sugary, but I blame the canned pineapple I used because it comes with a sugary juice. Next time I'll try either to use natural pineapple or reduce the one a half cups of sugar to one. I know some people might find this cake too heavy, I'd recommend to try reducing the amount of pineapple (half, maybe) since pineapple adds density & weight to the cake. I frosted the cake with half recipe cream cheese frosting II ... it was delicious, my fiance and my neighbors loved it!!
